#26905 new task

Work out if we need to round observed relay bandwidths to protect individual client usage

Description

Relays maintain detailed information about their maximum network load. After #24104, relays only report their maximum bandwidth once a day, over 10 seconds of measurement.

How sensitive is this bandwidth information?

Should we round these bandwidths to:

  • a number of decimal places?
  • a set amount of client usage that we want to protect?

I think we should tackle #26904 and #26905 after relay data usage is protected by PrivCount.

This isn't really a bandwidth authority task
